  • ½ pound strawberries fresh
  • 2 Tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper freshly ground


  • Hull the strawberries, and discard the rotten ones. Rinse them, especially if they contain residual dirt or sand. Let the washed strawberries drain.
  • Place the strawberries and sugar in a taller container. Using an immersion blender, blend them into a strawberry puree.
  • Season the strawberry mixture with lemon juice and ground pepper. Stir and serve. Easy!


  • Makes about 4 yields.
  • SERVING: Strawberry sauce is a great addition to ice cream, pancakes, homemade crepes, or waffles. Another good use is as a strawberry topping for panna cotta or cheesecake.
  • STORAGE: Store leftover strawberry sauce in the refrigerator in a lidded airtight container, where it will keep for about 3-5 days.
  • Adjust the amount of sugar in the sauce to your taste. Ripe strawberries will call for less sugar, resulting in a healthier sauce.
